    Will the ramsey rep8000 winch fit in a warn classic winch bumper? 4 wheel parts says that it will but I would be miffed if it showed up and didn't fit

    According to Warn the m8000 will fit in your classic bumper. The warn m8000 is 20.80in" in length and the Ramsey rep8000 is 20.86" in length. So I don't see why you would have a fitting the Ramsey in it. Have you already purchased the winch? If not take a look at the Ramsey Patinum9500. More power, and longer cable. More is always better than just enough.

    Well I am on a budget so I can't afford a Warn winch, so I am going to get the Ramsey 8000 special that they have at National tire and wheel. Thanks for the help

    I HAD that very winch, blew it up in the winter in the Sierra Nevada's, cost me $100 to have the armature rewound. If you can hold out save for a few more months & get the WARN, regardless, get a snatch blcok, they are a bit pricey, but well worth it. I run a WARN 900lb now, would have got the 10,000 or 12,000 but they didn't fit the homemade bumper I had at the time. By the way I built that bumper for a Ramsey 8000lb, and changed to the WARN 9000lb and it bolted to the exsiting holes.
